Chirping birds instead of chirping alarm clocks alert me that morning has arrived. That’s how I know that the school lunch sandwich-making is on hiatus and summer is here.
At 5PM Sunday I swallowed the last bite of my graduation sandwich. Amidst my exhaustion, I could almost feel the childhood excitement that pervades your body and soul when the last school bell rings and those long summer days devoid of homework have finally arrived.
This morning, I felt my cooking inspiration reappear and prepared a fresh fruit crisp for breakfast – I’ll share the new recipe in my next post. For now, enjoy the slideshow below with visual snippets of my quick, exciting and invigorating two days in Seattle at #blogherfood! If you’re interested in more information from our storytelling panel, you can find the live blog including the slide presentations here.
And congratulations to BlogHer and the Fairmont Olympic for running a content-rich and top-class conference and to my co-panelists Melissa Crane, Molly Wizenberg, and Tori Avey, and our moderator, Rebekah Denn, who all, in my opinion, exceeded expectations for delivering informative and inspiring messages during our storytelling panel.
